The village bank loan consists of fifteen people, all of whom live in Preak Ta Ong village in Kandal province. Mrs. Savon K. has been selected by the village bank members as their president. She is a farmer who owns a piece of land used for cultivating rice. She needs fertilizers and pesticides to support her business because her soil is infertile, so she has decided to ask for a loan to purchase these supplies. Her husband, Mr. Ma Vibol, is a construction worker who supports the family with his small income. The couple have two children; the elder is attending the local school, while the younger is too young to work or study.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
